Menu Planning {from the freezer}


I have to start by telling you all that I am starting a weight loss journey tomorrow and my menu planning may not be as fun as it typically is as I will NOT be eating any of it!

I am cooking from the freezer ALL week long in hopes to make my first week a bit smoother. I have decided that it will be much easier to just include EVERYONE in on my DIET  life style change.

I watched FOOD INC and have been obsessed  slightly concerned with what we eat and with the fact that I have gained a lot of weight and I want to be healthy. I am STILL going to share lots of yummy recipes, I am just hoping to share some HEALTHIER OPTIONS.

If you would like to read about my road from flab to fab you can pop on over to read what I can promise to be a very honest and humorous account of my weight loss journey.  For all the World to read. I have LOST my mind! No, it was lost long ago sometime around the summer after graduation. If I tell the World my story then

1. I will stick to it (because I wouldn’t want my friends to think I failed)

2. This makes it REAL

3. Maybe, someone will relate to me and share

    I like any meal I can make in a hurry!

    And I relate all too well to struggles with weight & food.

    I was all proud of the 8 pounds I’d lost since New Year’s, but gained 2 back over the Snarkler weekend. Boo. Ugh.

    But today is a new day. Right?!?!

    Hi, I’m new to CCWA and I’m going down the blog roll making new friends.

    First of all, I have to say, you have one of the prettiest blogs I’ve ever seen! It’s just lovely.

    Good luck on the weight loss journey. I am trying to lose a few myself for my upcoming class reunion and just because I need to. I’m so glad I found your site. I will be perusing recipes!

    I love seeing what everyone is planning fro the week. I have not been able to see food inc yet…I did a post about it and Michael Pollard after Oprah had her special. I am trying to stick to the McDougall Program…it is vegetarian, but the rest of the family wants their meat.

    i haven’t watched it yet as im a bit scared too! but i have recently gotten rid of ALL processed foods in out diet, its all from scratch now. my pantry looks quite bare…ive been playing around with different flours and sweeteners too.

    I too have been struggling to loose weight and when i decided to “can” canned food, the diet was tough to follow(weight watchers). I have since learned to cook “real food” and just know I need to excercise more knowing my family doesn’t get chemicals and other ick factors in their food!

    feel free to check out my blog! goodluck on your journey!
